Drive-like in its European arthouse style: sparse dialogue, a synth/pop score, and reluctance to spoon feed information-- which is all good until a head-scratching change of heart by the title character in the finale. Actually, it should've dropped Vano's character entirely, as well as the chase scene that dilutes the dramatic impact it established, akin to the final shot oddly reversing its otherwise smart message.
I checked out after someone was impaled by a baton. Besides the deceptively good score and camerawork, this film was a mess. Little to no dialog punctuated by misfired and boring scenes, a final act mostly composed of an inexplicable and drawn-out chase, and ultimately an ending where there are no answers and we are left to believe this man is not only impervious to injury, but also to the law.
